National Chocolate Eclair Day

It’s National Chocolate Eclair Day! Did you know that “éclair” is the French word for lightning? It may have gotten its name from the "flash" of frosting that glistens across its top, though the direct connection between lightning and this delicious French pastry is unclear.

The eclair has been a favorite treat since its creation in the 1860s, and it will undoubtedly continue to be a bakery shop staple for a long time. The French call the dough of these treats “choux,” which is carefully baked to allow for a hollow interior. Then cream, custard, or purée is piped into its center and it is topped off with fondant icing.  

With its flaky dough and sweet, creamy filling, this dessert has become a global favorite. To celebrate National Chocolate Eclair Day, head over to your nearest bakery!
